Retailers using our Point of Sale software can backup in a range of ways including to USB sticks, online services and a range of other options. It’s our recommendation that retailers using an online or cloud service supplement this with regular local backups.
The risk with an online backup service is that you need Internet access to access your data. In disaster situations such as flood and fire, access to the Internet can be challenges. If your data is only backed up online you donut have access to it.
This is why we recommend backing up locally to a device you have ready and safe access to.
